Bitcoin Remains Under Tense Bearish Pressure Despite Positive On-Chain Metrics

November 23, 2021


Bitcoin (BTC) has remained under intense bearish pressure for the past few weeks as it recently fell to the $56K level. That said, the benchmark cryptocurrency’s on-chain metrics show signs of accumulation.

On-chain analytics provider Glassnode recently reported some positive data for Bitcoin, noting that:

“The number of #Bitcoin addresses with a non-zero balance [have] reached a new all-time high of 38.76 million addresses. The previous high of 38.7 million was set seven months ago on April 23rd, taking 213 days to fully recover.”

Another on-chain data provider, Santiment, reported that despite the intense bearish pressure plaguing it, Bitcoin’s supply on exchanges has diminished significantly, thereby reducing further sell-off risks. Additionally, the platform revealed that USDT supply on crypto exchanges continues to rise, indicating significant buying power. 

Meanwhile, reports show that short-term BTC holders consistently sold their holdings during the recent price correction. Glassnode reports a 15% drop in Bitcoin supply in profits and is in the bull/bear transition area. 

Also, Glassnode reported that short-term holders react the most to the volatile price action, noting that: 

“Short term holders (STH) are most responsive to price action due to a combination of having a higher relative cost-basis, a higher time preference, and potentially a lower degree of conviction in the asset. This week’s price action was no exception, as STHs played a role in setting both the highs and the lows.”

Key Bitcoin Levels to Watch — November 23

Despite having positive on-chain metrics, BTC still struggles to muster any bullish traction as bears keep the pressure. The benchmark cryptocurrency currently trades above the critical $56K – $53.7K pivot zone, which until last Friday remained unbroken for six weeks.

That said, if bears lack the strength to push the price below the upper limit and towards the $54K zone, we could see a bounce in the coming hours towards $58K. A successful push towards the $58K level should help BTC secure a move to the $60K psychological mark. 

Meanwhile, my resistance levels are at $56,700, $57,500, and $58,000, and my key support levels are at $56,000, $55,500, and $55,000.
